California State University trustees have approved a plan for more residential development at a South Coast campus.
Cal State Channel Islands wants to expand its University Glen community.
Plans call for 54 homes, 66 townhouses, and 480 apartments.
The project would provide affordable housing to faculty and staff members, as well as a revenue stream to help pay for university projects.
The 32 acre development would include 170 apartments which are specifically designed to provide affordable housing to 55 plus seniors.
Some residents of the existing University Glen project have expressed concerns about impacts of the growth. University officials say they’ve made some changes to try to address concerns.
CSUCI is considered a statewide innovator in creating revenue generating projects to allow the university to grow in a time when there’s limited state support available.
